3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lightly hazy amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, nuts, toasted dough, and light citrus. Taste of nuts, toffee, some caramel malts, bread, and a semi-sweet finish.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Most beers advertised as just a simple lager are pretty unimpressive and unexciting. This lager was completely different. This lager had some body and real flavor to it. It starts off with a dark golden pour and soft, bubbly and thick white head. There was plenty of lacing to go around as well. The aroma featured some nice maltiness, along with some earth and a beautifully balanced amount of floral hops. The body was very drinkable, with flavors of light hops, earthy malts and some grains. The beer finished extremely smooth, leading me to the belief that I could sit at that bar all night and drink these. This is definitely one of the better lagers out there.

This was a pretty watery eastern european style beer. Not much flavor or taste but it wasn’t horrible to drink through either.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at PA Spring Fest. Cloudy orange-brown color, nice head. Smooth and malty, with some deeper tones than your typical lager. Very nice, perfect session beer, but also enjoyable enough to sip slowly on. Not much hop presence. I think it was better the first time I had it, when the yeast was shaken about the keg.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On cask at the brewery, poured a hazy yellow with a decent head and sediment in the beer. The beer was extremely flavorful with hefty citrus orange notes, and a wonderful hop aroma that really melded with the citrus flavor. Pretty nice beer and the cask pour adds to the beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, Harrisburg location. Pours a hazy orangish yellow body with a small film of white head. The nose is slightly bready pale malt with a slight yeastiness and just a little grassy hops. Very nice doughy and bready maltiness, very soft and well rounded flavor. Light to moderate bitterness with a bit of fluffy yeast on the finish. Mouthfeel is very soft and smooth with moderate carbonation. Very nice, one of my favorites from ABC.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the Camp Hill location. Pours gold with nice off-white head. The aroma is very mellow with some sweet malt, some lemon meringue, a little bit of grain dust. The flavor is clean sweet malt, some distant fruitiness. There’s a hint of grassy hops in the finish, but the beer is mostly balanced toward the sweet side.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Was anxious to try this, even though lagers have let me down in the past, I wasn’t disappointed. On tap @ Camp Hill. Pours a cloudy gold, with a nice white head. Crisp aroma, a little flowery. Very clean body, a touch of spice, maybe nutmeg. Sweet, easy finish. Not very complex, but was a good brew.
